Better to be consumed somewhere underground, (…) than by my own mother and father, who never saw me as anything more than food.

Sigh. My mother.
She showed up for Thanksgiving without her hearing aids. Nope, Mom. We drove her back home to get them. Of course, she still couldn’t hear.
I’m constantly talked down to and criticized. I’m not allowed to get upset. She’s actually told me that if I didn’t screw up all the time, she wouldn’t need to correct me.
Don’t ever expect an apology. My whole life, all I’ve ever heard was, “Oh poor you. Get over it.”
This week, Mom had the nerve when the Ex came up in conversation to tell me that he’s not that bad. She’s always liked him.
How poorly he’s treated me is irrelevant, it seems.
I replied that was a shame because he’s never liked her. It was kinda mean but it was true.
I’ve slowly gotten crabbier and more irritable as this visit has gone on.
And now she’s coming back up to Eugene with us until next year.

today i discovered that not everyone calls kids in pigtails "dual aft pigtails" bc thats what my DAD called them. hes a pilot. dual aft refers to a type of tail on an airplane to cut resistance. whenever he did my hair in pigtails as a kid he would put them at the right angle so they qualified as dual aft. what a fuckign nerd

Y’all be safe playing among us. I now its a social game but like don’t give out your name or what school you go to. Like I’m sure people might Not track you down using that information but im 23 years old and I grew up during a time were they made us fear strangers and putting information online.

Some more examples, just cause. The trend of asking for someone’s personal information just seems to be growing on Among Us. A report button of some kind would be cool. Like every other game I join is asking where someone lives or their age. I was in a game labeled TEEN ONLY (I’m 23, I LIED) just too... see. This grown person was giving out their snap. In another game I’m 75% sure it was 2 creeps working together. One pretending to be a girl and both them asking Player Red for lots of info about themselves. Anytime I spoke up, I was instantly kicked or banned from the game. People are CREEPS and you need to practice internet safety at all times.

The US decided to change their citizenship rules so instead of being born a citizen if you’re born there, you now need to be conceived there as well. If not, you become a legal citizen of the country you were conceived in. After this was implemented, there was a huge scandal where like 1/3 of the population got deported because they were conceived on their parents vacations and all the politicians who wrote the rule got deported.

Parents don't understand that violating our privacy not only gives us trust issues but also takes away the only positive way we know how to cope with our issues. Like the times I wrote poetry as a means to express myself and stop myself from self-harming, my mother read my poetry without my permission and then passed cynical judgment that further led me to hide stuff from her. I read fanfictions because it takes my mind off things that make me anxious but my dad keeps trying to take a peek and tell me I shouldn't waste my time reading crap like these. What they don't understand is that things that we do in private are the things that help us the most. Chatting with a friend in private because it's much easier to share our problems and we can express ourselves better, writing in a diary in private because it helps to clear our mind and give us some peace, listening to music in private because it allows us to relate to the lyrics more and gives us comfort. All of the stuff that we kids want to do in private is because in solitude we are able to detangle our thoughts and emotions. I wish parents would understand this before checking their kids' phones or going through their personal stuff without their permission.

Your children aren’t meant to be therapists for your bad marriage. Your children aren’t meant to be the adults in the house if your partner isn’t home. Your children aren’t supposed to parent their younger siblings. Your children aren’t supposed to fix your financial woes. Putting these demands on children from a very early age is actually a form of abuse.
